#GirlCrush: 5 Small Business Owners We're Loving This Month

Here at C&C, we’re always coming across truly amazing women who are running cool, creative small businesses and shaking things up in their respective industries. Starting today, we’ll be sharing monthly roundups of these budding entrepreneurs, so you can get in on the party and support their work.

See who we’re inspired by right now below!

Jessica Young, Bubble

Jessica was working as a chef and head of product at meal delivery service Daily Harvest when she started building Bubble, a direct-to-consumer health food company. “Think Farfetch meets Erewhon, but available to everyone in the USA,” she says.

Ally Maki, Asian American Girl Club

After realizing that none of the clubs she was in as a child had any members that looked like her, Ally knew she wanted to create that community. She launched AAGC, an apparel company that redefines what it means to be an Asian woman. (We love their clothes, but we’re pretty obsessed with their marketing, too.)

Anishka Boozer, Gypsy BK

Aniksha first got into jewelry when she sold a collection of repurposed designer vintage jewelry. She realized the demand for her unique style was high, and so Gypsy BK was born. Today, Anishka custom designs and manufactures her own gorgeous pieces.

Jenna Blazevich, Vichcraft

Jenna launched Vichcraft shortly after turning down her dream job in packaging design to pursue her own business full-time. She’s built quite the empire, working on projects for clients like Instagram, NPR, and Hillary for America on top of hosting workshops and selling apparel, prints, and accessories on her shop.

Liz Eichholz and Lindsey Johnson, Weezie

When Liz asked Lindsey an innocent question: "what towels do you use?" Lindsey responded "I actually hate my towels." And thus began Weezie, makers of the softest towels we’ve ever touched.
